From “A Creature of Flame and Desire” by Sergio Delgado, Copyright, 2014

Today’s portrait also comes from “The Charmer” (1925).  Here is Pola in full smile–a rarity across most of her Paramount portraits.  She is so full of warmth and playfulness here–and gorgeous.  I wish the movie still existed so I could see it.  As an added bonus is a photo of Miss Negri posing for Paramount studio photographer Eugene Richee.  Please enjoy.
